The admirable book under review, written by an eminently qualified mathematician, makes a notable contribution to the understanding of the historical process that has shaped what is known today as functional analysis...Dieudonné has given us a very readable and exciting account of how functional analysis has evolved...This is essential reading for functional analysts who wish to know how their subject came into existence.
